make your own fancy dress ideas - let your imagination run wild!
Make your own fancy dress ideas, it saves you money and ensures that no one else turns up looking the exact same as you! There's few things more annoying than spending money on a costume only to find you're not the only one wearing it!
When thinking of a fancy dress idea, customisation is the key! There's no hard and fast rule as to how a costume should look. It's all in the spirit of fun. A trip to your local party shop should yield some ideas and then you have a basis to work from.
Old reliable costumes include cowboys, fairys, ghosts, mermaids, goths or musicians such as Madonna, Boy George, Suggs from Madness and, more recently, Lady Gaga!
A very simple costume would be a rock star creation. This would only need a wild wig, a ripped t-shirt, skinny jeans and some leather look accessories! The fun is in coming up with ideas to make it yours, whether it be really crazy make up or stick on gems, the sky is the limit when it comes to fancy dress!
Stargazer, which is stocked by New Look and a lot of joke shops, is an ideal make-up range when it comes to party faces. The eyeshadows come in a range of fluorescent colours and have matching nail varnishes! They also have an extensive selection of false eyelashes which add serious impact to any costume! This is also a budget brand so the eyeshadows are only around 3.99 each!
